Bible: John 4:31-38

Workers for the Harvest

4:31 Meanwhile the disciples were urging him, 1 Rabbi, eat something.” 2  4:32 But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.” 4:33 So the disciples began to say 3  to one another, “No one brought him anything 4  to eat, did they? 5  4:34 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of the one who sent me 6  and to complete 7  his work. 8  4:35 Don’t you say, 9 There are four more months and then comes the harvest?’ I tell you, look up 10  and see that the fields are already white 11  for harvest! 4:36 The one who reaps receives pay 12  and gathers fruit for eternal life, so that the one who sows and the one who reaps can rejoice together. 4:37 For in this instance the saying is true, 13 One sows and another reaps.’ 4:38 I sent you to reap what you did not work for; others have labored and you have entered into their labor.”
